The first injury was most likely caused by the second one. It just happened to manifest itself that way. Emery said that something didn't feel right and that that probably lead to the abdominal issues.

I really don't see Emery coming back in the NHL. Apparently he had "better then expected" surgery, but it will still take another 6 months to know if he can play again. If all goes well, he would still need to get back in game shape. So I could see some AHL signing him the a tryout contract for a few games ala Graham. After that who know, but if all goes well, maybe Europe again. I don't think an NHL team would do anything more then maybe bring him in competing for a back-up spot in camp, even if the hip is 100% and he plays well in his time back.
